AT&T's new mobile security solution is now available for businesses and organizations, allowing them to ensure the protection of confidential data and fulfill government mandates.
AT&T Mobile Security includes device-level security, application protection, mobile device management (MDM) capabilities, network-based security controls, and encrypted transport.
The security solution is available across carriers and can be used for multiple mobile operating systems, the company said.
"Based on what we saw in the PC-based era, we know device-level protection alone is not enough to secure the mobile environment," said Ed Amoroso, AT&T's chief security officer.
"An effective approach to security must include network level visibility to detect threats before they reach the enterprise, so customers can confidently and safely take advantage of mobile solutions for their businesses," Amoroso added.
More than 50 percent of surveyed organizations reported that they lost data over the past year, according to the Ponemon Institute, and 59 percent saw an increase in malware infections due to insecure mobile devices.
AT&T's new solution provides businesses and organizations with protection across wireless environments and includes device and network level threat detection, application controls, and secure mobile VPN.
These solutions can be customized for devices, applications, platforms, support and management services, network services, cloud solutions, and life-cycle management.
